Wear jeans for sick children

Jeans Day buttons, pins promote children's health

British Columbia and the Yukon will once again support Jeans Day on April 24, and hope to raise $1 million for BC Children’s Hospital this year.

It is easy to participate. Simply visit a participating local retailer and purchase a $5 Jeans Day button or a $20 lapel pin. The money will go to support BC Children’s Hospital, while you will gain a visible way to demonstrate your support.

Just pin your button or lapel pin on and wear it along with a pair of jeans on April 24 to join millions of others across the province and its northern neighbouring territory.

When a lot of people make even a small contribution, it adds up to make a big difference.

Since 1991, Jeans Day has raised more than $16.8 million to help change the lives of B.C.’s sick and injured children.

In 100 Mile House, Jeans Day buttons and lapel pins are available now at Save-On-Foods and at Donex Pharmacy & Department Store.
